I thought it was unsafe to mix new/delete and malloc()/free(). (free'ing
new'd memory, and the other way around)
Granted, with the current new/delete overrides it doesn't make a difference.
but wasn't the plan to get rid of them soon?
The fileloading code in Queen does 'new' (it's C++ afterall) so shouldn't it
be 'deleted' ?
